I just got Don't starve together from a friend, It's a really fun game to play with friends.
It appears you get a free extra copy for a friend if you buy the game.
I don't know if this is old news, So if you want to buy the game but you don't have friends that own it, just buy it and gift your friend a copy.

And Xyphien if the site will begin to get active, maybe you can give away that free copy or put one in the shop, If you want to buy the game yourself.

It is a really fun game. I played it a lot when I was deployed :D Haven't really touched it in a while though, but I did get a lot of game hours with it :D Also, I'd be more than happy to add if it I had an extra copy lol. Unless you were saying you'd donate a copy :D

Sorry, I don't have an extra copy, because I'm the one who got an extra copy from a friend lol.

I really enjoyed it back when I played it, I may play this again some day but I haven't in awhile. The multiplayer aspect definitely adds another level of fun to the crafting/survival game!

As someone who played it only for a bit, i kind of hated how it shares zero info on what i should do, or can do. I felt like time ticks faster than i'd like to as well, and i had many troubles finding food or figuring things out, which resulted into making me all anxious for the whole session. I haven't played the original, so that probably explains stuff. Will give it another try someday.

I know what you mean, I bought the original but refunded it because I didn't really know what to do, now I have been playing with friends I'm learning more and more, This game doesn't explain anything, you need to discover itself and I don't think that's bad. It's just gonna be hard surviving long if you still have to figure out what to do.

Discovering things myself isn't bad at all, i love doing that, i just would prefer a slower pace. Because it felt like i was dying too fast. I have no problems with the survival elements in Starbound for example(great indie game). Another similar game to Don't Starve is Feel The Snow by the way. I own it, played it, found it alright but it needs more content and some gameplay improvements. Feel free to check it out if you wish to.

That's the fun of some of the add ons though, the mods in the Steam Workshop, there are some which let you mess with the time, seasons, inventory space, characters, things you can do. If you guys haven't looked into it, you gotta. There's some fun stuff in the workshop for all sorts of different games. However, I do agree it stinks they didn't give you much direction in ways of how to play, etc.

I really like the fact that it doesn't tell you anything. It allows you to learn from your mistakes, yeah it might be annoying from time to time having to start all over, but once you do you realize, hey, I should do this next time, or I definitely can't do that again. I think it adds to the replay value tbh.
